As I’ve left Christianity I’ve one thing that I’ve missed is the community. It was a built in time at least once a week where I was able to hang out with people. They even had a place for my kids so I could have a grown up conversation. It was a nice thing to have but something I’ve given up with my lack of belief. Sure I could find a church and fake it I suppose, but I would have to fake it and that sounds exhausting.
I know there are atheist groups around me and even some Secular Humanist groups but being a huge introvert it’s hard for me to even think about venture out. That and I have two kids (4 and 1 1/2) which makes attending these groups even a bit more difficult.
I’m not looking to start a pity party just wanted to express that I guess I wasn’t expecting this whole atheism thing to be so lonely.
